disABLEDperson, Inc. is excited to announce our Spring 2010 nationally based scholarship competition for college students with disabilities! This competition begins on January 11, 2010 and ends on March 1, 2010 for the award of $1000.00 (one thousand dollars)!

To participate, follow these simple steps: Write an essay with no more than 750 words (prompt can be found below). Click on the “Register Now” link below. Fill out the form completely and paste your essay into the form.

A few reminders: Please keep in mind that the form must be filled out completely. We cannot accept incomplete or fraudulent forms. Spelling and grammar is imperative. Please submit carefully edited drafts only.

In order to qualify, the student must be enrolled in a 2 or 4 year accredited college or university in the United States of America. They must be a full-time student and U.S. citizen (minimum of 12 credits for undergraduate, 9 credits for graduate). Unfortunately, we are not able to award scholarships to high school students or college students who are not attending classes full-time.

Upon winning, the student will prove disability through their Disability Student Services department. We define disability as: “A disadvantage or deficiency, especially a physical or mental impairment that interferes with or prevents normal achievement in a particular area, something that hinders or incapacitates.”

Be sure to submit your entry before the March 1, 2010 deadline. The winner will be announced on our website on March 15, 2010. All decisions made by disABLEDperson, Inc. are final.

The essay question for this competition is: “How would you rate President Obama for the work he has done in his first year as president, be specific”?
